One of our members had a great idea of a reading/discussion group reagrding The 5000 Year Leap - a great book for those of you who haven't read it. I'd like to suggest a few more books that I believe reinforce the ideas put forth in the 9/12 Project and my fellow members.
How Capitalism Saved America - Thomas DiLorenzo
48 Liberal Lies About American History - Larry Schweikart
The ProFessors - David Horowitz
More Guns, Less Crime - John Lott Jr.
State of Emergency - Patrick J. Buchannan
Marching Towards Hell - Michael Schuerer
Real Change - Newt Gingrich
Most, if not all, of these books are available in audio versions as well. If you're like me and have a crazy schedule, it's nice to be able to listen while driving.
I have assigned the first two books on my list for my AP U.S. History students as their summer reading assignment.
Last year, my AP kids read Obama's "Audacity of Hope" and Gingrich's "Real Change". They had to summarize and analyze both books, then explain who's vision of America they believed was the best course for America's future. 25 out of 27 students picked Gingrich's view. There is hope for the next generation!
